It's me -- m12 -- back for my autumn cleanse. I'm just finishing Day Two of my fourth MC -- the previous three were all 10 day affairs, as this one will be.
Feeling well so far, despite an intense schedule and a very large and challenging fifth-grade class this year.
One thing that's made it a bit easier this time around is that since my August, I discovered EFT. I know there's at least one person on the board who practices EFT, and I was wondering if anybody has anything to say about it (relative to the MC, that is).
Best wishes to you all,
Ending my day 10 and making myself ready for the transition. I can't say that this cleanse was enjoyable. But it did help me to realize that I can't put my focus on a fast way to loose weight, but to continue with the good habits I gained from the first cleanse. This board has been a HUGE help (as always).
You can't have success without some type of struggle. Just hang in there!!!
It's day 31 for me. I think I will end the cleanse this Sunday, so 35 days total. I'm just freezing. Didn't reach my goals for loosing 20 lb, lost just 15, but it's OK. I think I'm ready to end it. My body just tells me it's enought. My tongue is not completely pink, but almost pink. I just miss cooking and buying food, which is my favorite thing to do.
Good luck to everybody and don't give up!
Oct 25, 2007. Maidenbower here. Day 5 of my second fast. I did my first one back in July. I have all good things to say about The Master Cleanse. The first time out I did have a detox headache for about two days. This time it only last 1/2 day. I guess I am not as toxic as before. Also I find elimination a lot better this time around. I have energy to burn and feel fantastic. I hope to complete at least 10 days but if I am feeling real good, I will probably try to extend it. My weight began at 288 and this morning I am at 282. I was actually 297 with my first cleanse. I did not stick to a healthy diet afterwards and I am sorry I didn't as I just started to feel sluggish again. Good luck to all you first timers. It works and I promise you will feel better just stick with it.
I'm finally on DAY 10!! Waaahh-hooooooo!!!! I bought some lovely organic valencia oranges this morning I cannot wait to get into tomorrow!
I've done it again and I am feeling very accomplished. This board has been a great help, so THANKS!
Overall I lost about 8 lbs, seemed to plateau after Day 7, but I am back to my normal weight. My body just seems to like this number so I can deal with that
Best wishes to all...it's a long road but you are doing something remarkable for your health. And remember to BREATHE! when the going gets tough.
Best to all,
Hello All, Today is Day 4. I am mentally feeling better, with more energy but boy my joints are aching. I am still having trouble drinking 6 cups of the lemonade each day. Yesterday I made it to 5. Trying for 6 today. The SWF was easier to drink today....didn't have as much release as on other days but it's still early in the process. Glad to know there are others out there doing the same thing.....
Just a comment on EFT, there is a website www.emofree.com with all the info on it. Gary Craig is the founder and he has a free downloadable manual which can get you started. He has a series of amazing DVD's if there is more interest. Also mtmouse is an EFT life coach who is just AMAZING. I have had 5 sessions with her on what I feel are major issues to me and she has cleared up everyone of my issues. My Mum has had a couple of sessions with her and those have been fantastic also. EFT is truly an amazing tool that works and really lets you get your life back. Again, mtmouse is AMAZING, if you are having difficulty with doing EFT on your own, she is really worth while contacting.
Hello to all- I am ending my 2nd MC today& i have to say i am so surprised how different this one was then Jan.'s- i must of been so much more toxic because this one was slow&rumbling uncomfortable&restless- its almost like i was reliving all the months i haven't been eating like i cared enough to save my own life..pity..i have such great intentions! &that brings me to right now again. here i sit w/wonderful plans, beautiful organic/raw intentions and it seems that it just doesn't last- i am not sure how to keep going w/so many around me cooking outrageous rich foods, inviting me to amazing restaurants that promise nirvana&so much coffee everywhere i look..that was my world for so long and i pray i can continue to back out of it til i can't be easily lured back in. So. i will keep reading this board, ( something i didn't do last time) i am going to several raw foods lectures in the weeks to come, and i will one day& a time ( just like i did it 20+yrs ago when i got sober) to stay in the solution and ask for help. Thanks to everyone who shows up here- what a blessing.CitrusB
Day 4 here and feeling great! So far I haven't had any MAJOR detox symptoms. A little achy yesterday morning, but it didn't last, and today a slightly runny nose, sinus pressure, and a little cough. Probably cleanse related, but it IS that time of the year too. So far nothing I can't handle
Except, I just REALLY don't enjoy the lemonades.....I drink them as fast as I can and wash it down with more plain water! I tell myself, that it only takes about a minute or less to down it, so that's only 6 minutes out of my day Also, this cleanse, it has been harder to get down all of the SWF--I usually leave the last 8oz, just cannot get it in....hope that isn't a problem?
Went to aerobics class last night and did just fine--hope to get another one in today as I really feel energetic I just love some of the benefits of the cleanse!
Ok, gotta leave for now, I'll check back in if things get tough!
Keep up the good work everyone--our bodies/heath are worth it!
Blessings to you all,
Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!!!
